abstract

  • We consider the mixed convective flow at an axisymmetric stagnation point on a heated horizontal boundary. The forced flow is moderated by a free-convective element whose origin is a pressure gradient induced by temperature variations along the boundary. The main aim of the investigation is to identify situations in which a steady flow is maintained.
